Chevrolet CERV II Concept supercar

In the last few years, General Motors has been thinking of a lot of ways of improving their products by testing new ideas. For extra help, the specialists have asked for help from Zora Arkus-Duntov. In essence, the most interesting thing referred to the idea of developing an all-wheel drive mid-engined racing car. This new feature will enable Chevrolet to become a competitor on the greatest racetracks in the world like different Ferrari models and the American Ford GT40. The first job Duntov had was to turn the first generation Corvette from a cruiser into a sports car by offering a small V8 engine. Now the specialists are trying to offer a mid-engined all-wheel drive sports car especially made for the Corvette.

At the beginning there will be an experimental car which will be called Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle II and the most important thing about it is the four-wheel drive system with torque vectoring. The V8 car will be capable of generating 500 horsepower and this engine is also used in the CERV II. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds which is quite impressive. So that you know, the top speed will be 212 mph thanks to the power delivered to the front end at low speed and 40 % at high speed. More details will be available before the end of next month.
